Cute Coot Casts Beady Red Eye Over Onlookers

The Hertford Basin coot has returned to its usual nesting location, teetering on the brink of the weir.
If you’re not sure how to tell a coot from a moorhen, it’s quite easy. Coots are larger, with white beaks. Moorhens have red/orange beaks.
Moor hen – more colour.
